The Met are warning bikers of the risks of moped crime at a motorcycle show at the ExCel arena for three days.
The Operation Venice team will appear at the Carole Nash MCN Motorcycle Show from today until Sunday, talking to riders about what they’re doing to tackle moped crime and how owners can reduce their chance of becoming victims.
Commander Julian Bennett said: “Police are working hard to keep the public safe and make the streets hostile territory for criminals who steal scooters, mopeds and motorcycles and use them to snatch valuables from members of the public.
“We want to prevent the theft of scooters, mopeds and motorcycles in the first place so they can’t be used in the commission of further crime.
You may also want to watch:
“The more visible the security, the less visible your scooter is to thieves. Adding extra security makes it harder for them to steal – always remember, Lock, Chain, Cover.”
In June, the Met launched their Be Safe campaign to raise awareness of the security measures riders can take to keep their bikes secure.
